Gene BurnsGene Burns, DPh

Pharmacist and Owner

Dr. Gene Burns is a Sullivan County native and lifelong resident of the area. Even from a young age, he had a keen interest in biology, chemistry, and mathematics – a path that ultimately led him to pursue a career as a pharmacist. He received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2012.

After graduating, he decided to return to the County to practice independent community pharmacy and opened the Roscoe Medicine Shoppe in 2013. Two years later, he left Roscoe to focus on bringing an independent pharmacy back to Callicoon, and helped to open Riverside Remedies in 2014. Dr. Burns’s professional areas of interest include nephrology and clinical research. In his free time, he enjoys tinkering on a wide assortment of never-quite-finished mechanical projects, playing electric guitar, and watching live music.
